Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Everything I hear this family is first class all the way

So whatever they are doing, I'm sure it's justified and well thought out

Good luck to the kid wherever he plays this year

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Typically this stuff is not heavily enforced...Can anyone name a time when someone was caught and or rule ineligible ? I'm guessing if the kid is really going back there, they have the thumbs up already in place with MSHSL Maybe they were renting and now are buying? Maybe all it takes is the right p...

Re: NDTP Invites MN edition

Couple observations from day one 1. 11 Americans picked in the first round and none were Minnesota kids...Tells me that no matter how many checks you parents write out eventually talent catches up.

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

I wasn't specifically referring to 10th graders at Tonka

More asking are there any soon to be 11th graders in the STATE who saw what BB did last year and may do the same thing this coming year

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

It's my opinion that SOME scouts "prefer" kids playing Tier 1 (or Juniors) over High School Do I always agree with them...Of course not.. As with many things, sometime they are right and sometimes they are wrong. Today GOOD scouts, college coaches and the top shelf advisers will rarely say "no worri...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Lots of reasons scouts PROBABLY DON'T take HS goalies serious 1. 25-26 games of which 75% of them are simply not competitive one way or the other 2. Most HS goalies are not 6 foot tall 3. Almost all goalies are nothing more than target practice at HS (Coaches with little ability or time to focus on ...

Re: 2022 grad commits to WI on 5/10 - so much for recruiting rules

Did anyone REALLY believe NCAA would get this right? Does anyone REALLY really think this will stop coaches for "committing kids early" There are way to many "open" ends to this new policy to think it will change a whole lot. They had the ability to get it right but all they did was change a few dat...

Re: Scout's perspective

Everyone sees kids differently.

It's an "evaluation" without any evaluation "after the fact." The list comes out and it's over. USA has some influence with the 15's but probably stays out of it for the 16's and 17's unless they truly have someone in their sights for next years NDTP team. The kids leave the weekend not knowing why ...

Couple things (and let me preface by saying I am a gopher fan) I don't think the Big Ten will necessarily prove to be the better of the two conferences. It's a great topic to debate but I think each conference will have it's good years and their bad years. As far as the gophers. Every time there is ...

We have the luxury of sitting back and breaking down the mistakes all these coaches made. But let's be honest.

Re: Development is YOUR responsibility

My advice to any parent with young kids is simply this. 1. Learn to say NO.. Once you say yes, you're hooked and you can never turn back again 2. Do not over train your kid (kids today are zombies...to many lack creativity/high IQ.)...IMO, anyone who tells you 6:00am training sessions before school ...
